JAKARTA – Some animals have horns, ivory or shell as a protective device if there are enemies. A group of mammals that have horns like deer, antelope, goat, giraffe, and buffalo. However, not with water deer that has fangs.
Reporting from the page Inside Science, deer water has the nickname "vampire deer". To find out more about this deer, the researchers compared the habitat and behavior of 63 species, including the artiodactyl group that lived except hippos and whales. They measured the canines of each species using skeletal specimens in the museum.
While no relation between fangs and habitat has yet been found, perhaps some small species still have relationships such as large Javan mouse deer, have fangs more than half an inch in length, and they live in bushes that are so dense. So, making tunnels when moving from one place to another.
The researchers considered this reasonable, because sharp fangs like daggers would be effective weapons in thick bushes. These fangs also function to protect themselves.
Artiodactyla is a mammal animal consisting of approximately 220 species. They are mostly herbivorous animals which are usually marked with an even number of toes.
